Here’s a commission I did on canvas. I have sent it off by courier today:
I do not like painting animals’ tongues – they end up looking like there is a naked mole rat in its mouth…. Also black animals in watercolour are a challenge. Oh, and I don’t like collars. Apart from that, I was all good!!
Monty had a white marking where his front legs met, and I left this as a hard edge, just because I thought it made an interesting space.
I really liked it and I think his owners did too, so result all round!
